if loving you is wrong…i don’t want to be right….

the magic of polaroid has captivated many of us for years….and the never ending hunt for the last few boxes of film has many held in limbo….i have been exploring polaroid alternatives….and i am in love


all over again….these images were all photographed at a recent wedding with film (220 fuji & my contax) & i turned them into polaroids with my i-phone….they are “polaroidish” & i can’t get enough!

a little more sweetness...

    Beautifully done! That's awesome you can do that on your phone. If you want something for your computer, me and my friends have recently become obsessed with Poladroid (http://www.poladroid.net/). Download, drag and drop, and wa-la! Instant polaroid! :)

    I didn't know i-phone could do polaroid...beautiful ;) You might wanna check Poladroid website and download their version of polaroid ;) You could even shake the picture (moving the mouse), and see the image develop in front of you...

    Elizabeth, these are wonderful. I love your use of light in your photographs. Your scanning and processing skills are excellent.
    The quirky and funky look of polaroid have given these a very different look, its great!

    Oh I love the polaroid. And your blog is lovely.

    Polaroids do hold a special place in my heart too. So tactile...and virtually instantaneous. Not to mention their colors and painterly look. You did a beautiful job here with these images. I would love to have you photograph some of my flowers! Maybe one day...
